Uli Jon Roth: dean to create custom sky guitars!


Uli Jon Roth signature Sky Guitar will finally be unveiled at the winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California on January 14, 2010. There will be two different models on display, a six-string and a seven-string version.

This limited edition will be super-custom built 100% to Uli's specifications by the custom shop of Dean Guitars USA. Each guitar will be personally named and approved by Uli Jon Roth. Sky Guitars were the first electric guitars with a truly extended upper range and lots of extra frets

    You know what that means right?
    It means that you'll be paying boo-koo bucks to own one if these guitars.It' sad to say.
    rock-n-Roll was for the youth;the teen angst;the wanting to play and be like your rock idols;but now it seems(acutally it's been like this for a while now with the Artist models) that only those who can blow $3,500.00 to $4,500.00 on these axes will be able to own one.
    Never mind he kid that wants to play one,'these guitars are not to be played they are to be DISplayed... :(

    Hmmmm.

    It means get ready to fork over $3,500.00 to $4,500.00 dollars for a guitar that only those who can afford to blow that kind of money on a guitar can own one.Never mind the kid who likes rock n roll and wants to play an Artist model.
    These companies and atsist are selling them selves short instead of pricing it to where a ton of fans can own and play one.They price themselves right out of the mainstream market and build a guitar only rockstars and collectors with cash can have one.
    This guitar will be on ethat dshould be played not DISPLAYED.
    Like so many Ferraris that get purchased and then stored on the garage;these axes will be mostly one ice once they are purchased.

  4. And Eddie tries to go after the small people that are trying to build their little piece of fandom only to be called by EVH attorneys and to ordered to cease and desist.
    SHAME on you!
    These people(albeit the manufactures too)have forgotten what it was like to be a kid and cry for a guitar like their heroes on the posters and the ones they pay money too see play live,only to be slapped in the face by the reality of the sticker shock.

  5. What are you talking about? Only 3,500$, no way. 16th Street Guitars saled 'em for 16,000$.
